Italian Lessons in Toronto

Even if you are now working from home, take a break from your computer and learn Italian with an in-person qualified experienced instructor. They will come to your home, your work or you can even go them.

The type of courses we offer:

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) General Italian

This set of Italian tutorials are less specific and more targeted at those who want to get a range of different things from learning Italian. Even though all novice students will cover survival Italian: enough Italian to make a visit to the country or make good contacts with the locals, but what do you do from there? It depends on your needs. Those who have benefitted from these lessons have been those moving or investing overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people who love to travel all over the world, those interested in Italian culture, and those who just want to pass a specific examination in Italian.

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) Business Italian

These lessons in Italian are meant for those that feel that learning Italian would make a change in their work. For starters, it is expedient to learn how to say hello/goodbye, as well as basic business protocol; once the basics have been mastered, reading and writing come to the fore. Students who have greatly benefitted have been involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where another language is required, and those working in the international academia and government circuits. Even on our most fundamental beginner's lesson, students can anticipate ending the lesson with basic telephone Italian and e-mail Italian skills for communicating, as well as survival Italian if a short visit to the country is needed.

italian Songs


Con te partirò - Andrea Bocelli

This is a timeless love song performed by one of the most famous Italian singers of all time, Andrea Bocelli. In this piece, the artist dreams of traveling to new places with his lover, so it’s a great opportunity to learn vocabulary related to love and companionship. Also, Bocelli has great diction and enunciates the words clearly, making it a good song for beginners to start training their ears. Some expressions you’ll be learning are “con te” (with you), “su navi per mari” (on ships overseas), “tu mia Luna” (my moon), and more! Listen to this amazing song by Andrea Bocelli!

Almeno tu nell’universo- Mia Martini

Mia Martini is one of the most well-known famous singers in Italy who often sings about heartbreak and disappointment. That is the case of Almeno tu nell’universo, where the poetic protagonist sings about loving a strange man, unique in this world, but who doesn’t pay any attention to her. The song is almost entirely sung in the conditional tense, so it’s great practice for intermediate or even advanced students looking to expand their knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. There is heavy use of adverbs, for example, like davvero (really) or per sempre (forever). Enjoy her song here!

L’emozione non ha voce - Adriano Celentano

This song follows a man who’s confessing his love for a married woman, knowing she will never love him back. Still, he claims that his love will last for life. As the song is slow and Adriano Celentano pronounces each word very clearly, beginner students will find it easy to start training their listening comprehension while picking up some new words, such as “amico” (friend), vita (life), dormir (sleep), and more! The song also uses the future tense a lot, so it’s great if you’re looking to practice that particular grammatical feature while listening to great music. Click here to listen to this hit!
